? >> yeah, he had these -- he was never formally educated which often became an area of sensitivity for him. but he was completely self-taught. and had these terms phrase that became known as goldwynisms. like a verbal contractor isn't worth the paper it is written on or anybody who sees a psychiatrist ought to have their head examined. really wonderful terms of phrase like that. and eventually, you know, lore has it became a publicity thing and he became sense at this to it. put the kibosh on it because he worked hard to educate himself and felt that people were making fun of him. >> joy: i don't think people understand how he made it to hollywood. this is one of the most successful hollywood -- i guess he was the head of the studio. >> yeah, he had a very, very long career. he came to america at age 15 from poland, alone with no money with one suit of clothes on his back that he had borrowed from his uncle and walked on foot from eastern europe, he made his way to england where he had a relative, an uncle and he scraped together enough money to get steerage on the bottom of a boat to

that people are getting hurt. it's not my fault. (man) we weren't educated properly about the drugs. (woman) we are get told that it's bad for you and you don't hear anything else. (man)and yesterday we got into trouble because of (woman) there's no alternative like fair trade, or ethically friendly cocaine yet so we don't have a choice. >>yes, western societies have to take responsibility for the high level of demand in their er, amongst their citizens. if you're a cocaine user, you can either, confront the fact, and acknowledge that the commodity you buy comes from a dirty trade and has real ramifications down the line, or you can say well, to your governments, give me a legitimate way to buy this substance. people will always take drugs. we just need to manage that phenomenon in a way that is the best for society.
